Domain unlock lag time?

A potentially stupid question.

I’m trying to assist someone in transfering their domain from BlueHost to HostGator. The domain is more than 60 days old and by all accounts has no restrictions. I was successfully able to “Unlock” the domain under bluehost. However, when I initite the transfer from HostGator side, it says the domain is still “Locked”. I didn’t see any notes or documentation to suggest there could be a potential time delay here. So I’m just wondering if this is normal and I just need to give it some time? and if so.. would anybody have a ballpark time to wait before I reach out to customer service?
